Long and trying season comes to a close with loss

STANTON – The season started with high hopes and great expectations, but in the end the Stanton Buffaloes were not able to right the ship and lost the final game of the season to Colorado City 48-7.

The Wolves controlled the game from start to finish with a dominating rushing attack that racked up 347 yards on the ground and kept possession for nearly 30 minutes.

Despite the lopsided loss, Stanton managed to string some plays together and compete with Colorado City but costly errors kept the Buffs off the score board.

Stanton’s only touchdown came late in the fourth quarter when Tim Avila returned a kickoff 80 yards for a touchdown. Ariel Ramos added the extra point.

It’s WET

MARTIN COUNTY - For the first time that anyone can remember, Martin County residents will be able to buy beer and wine in Stanton stores.
